Xcel Energy says crews have restored electricity to nearly 64,000 people affected by outages due to this week's snow and ice storm.
But about 15,800 Xcel customers in eastern South Dakota and southwestern Minnesota are still without power.
Xcel says it expects "significant progress" today and that most customers will have power back by late Friday.
Another 2,200 homes and businesses served by rural electric cooperatives in the region remain in the dark.
